As you plan a funeral for your loved one, you may find yourself confused by all the funeral service options. These are the most important things you need to know about making funeral arrangements.

Georgia law outlines who can implement final disposition. It ranks, in the exact order of kinship or relationship to the deceased, who has the right to make decisions regarding the final disposition of a deceased person.

Honoring a loved one's life through a thoughtfully planned tribute provides a meaningful way for family and friends to reflect on the life of their loved one, support one another and begin the process of grieving.
